Welcome to NordKapp: the northernmost point of Europe, located at 71°10′21″N, 25°47′40″E.

Everybody think that this is the northest point of Europe, but it is false because the
the neighbouring point Knivskjellodden is actually some 1,500 metres further north. The NordKapp was named by English explorer Richard Chancellor in 1553 and then it was occasionally visited by explorers. Very famous was the visit of King Oscar II of Norway in 1873 and Thailand's King Chulalongkorn in 1907.

    This is only for tourists. The samis do not live like that at all. They live like the rest of the norwegians. I know, I live 14 km from Nordkapp...

    I do like coastal places maybe its northern location could account for the high prices Nice Tips
